University Master's Degree that entails a specialization, of an academic and research nature, in relation to analysis, detection and its application to attention for the development of mathematical competence.

The program revolves around four axes: the analysis of mathematical skills, the development and learning process of mathematical thinking, the analysis of the latest scientific contributions, and attention to learning difficulties by students in mathematics.

In this way, the proposal is based on the need to carry out research in the area from an integrating perspective, which harmonizes the relationships between research in mathematics didactics and teaching, with the aim of guiding teachers who show interest in starting as researchers in the area of didactics of mathematics.

This comes from the need to provide professionals in the educational field with methodologies and techniques necessary to develop research in the area of didactics of mathematics. In this way, it is aimed at graduates interested in the initial or continuous training of mathematics teachers and in research in Didactics of Mathematics, whose professional profile is oriented towards research and innovation in the didactics of mathematics, as well as for Mathematics, Early Childhood and Primary Education teachers who want to improve their didactic training linked to the latest scientific contributions in the area.
